CE Error message on Whirlpool Washer, top load

We get this error code every now and then which leads me to believe the quick connector might be loose at the motor terminal. Where is this so I can check.

Thanks ini advance for your help!

Ce code? on calypso washer


Hello there
The CE error stands for "Communications Error" and refers to a breakdown in communications between the machine controller and the motor controller. In practical terms, this problem is usually caused by a bad wire connection. The most common trouble spot is the quick disconnect at the motor connector-I've seen this problem a lot. Usually, if you just take off the connector and re-attach it, that clears it up... IF the appliance gods are grinning down upon you. But, you may not be so lucky and you may have to make a sacrifice in the temple of Appliantology to appease the appliance gods. Y'see, lots of other things can cause the CE error, too.

Now, you might delude yourself into thinking you're being all slick and clever by replacing just the fuse and save a wad of moola. Oh, my, but how I giggle and nearly wet myself when disheartened grasshoppers tell me of their folly in replacing the fuse on the motor control board only to

CE Communications ErrorIf there is any breakdown in communication between the machine controller and the motor controller, CE flashes and the unit beeps once.


Some common causes of CE errors include:

· Conformal coating on serial communications pins between the machine controller and motor controller. After disconnecting power to the unit, try scraping this coating off the pins.

· Check the resistance values between the serial communications pins with the connectors in place. Make sure the harness does not have a bad connection.

· Check the quick disconnect at the motor terminal. The drive motor must be hooked up properly or a CE error will occur.

· Drive motor thermal protector has opened.

·Motor controller is not powered or fuse has opened. Replace motor controller.

How can i fix the CE code on my washer? the CE code appears when i turn on the washer then it turns off.


The "ce" code indicates that a communication error occurred between the central control unit and the motor control unit. This can be caused by poor or loose electrical connections, especially at the motor connector. Unplug the machine before attempting any repair. The electrical connections can be unplugged and reseated to clean off corrosion. Also look for any damaged or burnt insulation on the wiring. If these steps fail to resolve the problem, you may want to consult an appliance repair technician for assistance. Sorry for your trouble and best wishes.

My washer keeps flashing CE code and turns off.


This indicates a communication error between the central control board and the motor control board. Since you said that the fuse is good, a common trouble spot to check is the quick disconnect at the motor connector. Sometimes, unplugging and reseating this connector will clear up the problem. (If you are lucky). Hope this helped and best wishes.
